    Is your Inspiron 660 a Desktop, or the 660s Compact Version?

    If it's the Desktop Version, the Dell Inspiron 660 Desktop Mini Tower can use most generic standard ATX power supply units, with either a 24-pin or 20+4-pin main motherboard power connector, with or without the on/off switch.

    You should be able to buy a compatible power supply from either a local or online computer store.

    Note: You require a power supply with four SATA power connectors.

    Check out the Corsair/Antec brands of power supplies.

    The CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3, as shown here, should be fine:
